Representing the base trim in the lineup for this full-size SUV, the 2009 Nissan Armada SE comes in rear-wheel drive, powered by a 32-valve, 5.6-liter DOHC V8 engine and 5-speed automatic. Together, this means 317 hp and 385 ft-lbs of torque at 3,400 RPM and a towing capacity of up to 9,100 pounds (with the optional trailer hitch), but fuel economy averages only 12/18 mpg. A flex fuel version is available. The large SUV seats eight in three rows, with a 40/20/40-split second-row bench and 60/40-split third-row bench. Second-row seats recline. Both rows fold flat, along with the front passenger seat, to expand cargo area from 20 to 97 cubic feet. A roof rack adds more space.

The 2009 Armada SE perches on a double-wishbone front and rear suspension. Side step boards help with access, as this SUV offers nearly 10 inches of ground clearance. A full complement of safety features includes 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires (and a tire monitor), 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, traction and stability control, front and rear stabilizer bars, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for each row. Rear parking sensors help avoid objects in reverse. Automatic headlights and daytime running lights are also included, with the option to add an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The Armada SE comes fully equipped with the standard power setup, which includes an 8-way power driver's seat, remote entry, cruise control, heated mirrors, and a trip computer. Wheel-mounted audio controls take care of the 6-CD/MP3 player. There is also an MP3 input and audio controls for second-row passengers. Rear climate control, leather trim, intermittent front and rear wipers, tilt and power steering, a temperature gauge and compass, and a tachometer round out the package. Power outlets reside in the front, rear, and cargo area. There are a lot of options for the 2009 Armada SE, including leather upholstery, a 4-way power passenger seat, a remote garage opener, power liftgate, sunroof, and DVD player. A cargo net and tray can be added to the cargo area.

Ready when you need it, the on-demand four-wheel-drive system in the 2009 Nissan Armada SE 4WD comes with a limited-slip and locking center differential. It features high and low gearing, meaning this full-size SUV can be taken off-road. This trim also comes with skid plates and offers 9.8 inches of ground clearance. The heavy-duty SUV gets its grunt from a 317-hp, 5.6-liter DOHC V8 and 5-speed automatic that deliver 385 ft-lbs of torque at 3,400 RPM. Adding the optional trailer hitch lets you tow up to 9,000 pounds. It has 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires that can be upgraded to all-terrain tires.

The eight-seat 2009 Armada SE 4WD has not yet been rated, but is fully packed with traction and stability control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, electronic brake assist, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all three rows, rear parking sensors, and front and rear stabilizer bars. A tire monitor, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights are all standard, and both foglights and an auto-dimming rearview mirror can be added. The SUV seats up to eight people in three rows, with second- and third-row benches that split-fold flat. The front passenger seat also folds flat. Second-row seats recline and feature an armrest that doubles as a storage compartment. The cargo area starts at 20 cubic feet and opens up to 97 with the seats down. A power outlet and tie-downs are standard. The rear window opens separately from the liftgate. A power liftgate is optional. If you need more room, roof rails are standard and cross bars can be added.

Full power features include an 8-way power driver's seat and remote entry. Wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, rear controls for the audio and climate, a trip computer, leather trim, and heated mirrors add an upscale feel. An 8-speaker 6-CD player comes with an MP3 input jack and satellite radio. Standard convenience features include tilt and power steering, front and rear power outlets, cupholders for each row, intermittent front and rear wipers, a tachometer, a temperature gauge, and a compass. LE-type options add a sunroof, leather upholstery, a 4-way power passenger seat, a garage opener, and a DVD player with wireless headphones.

Basically everything available as an option for the SE trim is now standard in the 2009 Nissan Armada LE. This luxury full-size SUV adds a long list of convenience and safety features to keep passengers happy. The rear-wheel-drive SUV seats eight in three rows. Both second and third rows split-fold flat (40/20/40 and 60/40), as does the front passenger seat, allowing for up to 97 cubic feet of cargo space. Second-row seats also recline, and captain's chairs are optional for this row. The cargo area features tie-downs and a power outlet, and the LE trim comes with a power liftgate. A roof rack is also standard and can be equipped with crossbars.

It's probably easier to list what the 2009 Armada LE doesn't have. Building on the SE, the LE gives you heated front seats, leather upholstery, remote start, and a garage opener. Both front seats can be power-adjusted (8-way driver, 6-way passenger), with driver's memory settings for the seat and mirrors. Wood trim joins leather accents. The sound system is upgraded to a 12-speaker Bose system, and the 6-CD changer features a remote. Audio controls can still be found on the wheel and in the second row. The system has an MP3 input jack and satellite radio. These upgrades join the full power setup, remote entry, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear climate control, a trip computer, heated mirrors, and Bluetooth. Intermittent front and rear wipers, a temperature readout and compass, three power outlets (front, rear, and cargo), and tilt and power steering are also standard. Available options include a DVD player, a navigation system with hard drive, a sunroof, and a tray and organizer for the cargo area.

In terms of safety, the LE starts with 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, traction and stability control, front and rear stabilizer bars, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all rows. But it adds larger 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires and a full-size spare, retractable mirrors with turn signals, auto-dimming rearview and side mirrors, and a rearview camera. It also adds front parking sensors to the existing rear ones. Foglights join the automatic halogen headlamps. The double wishbone front and rear suspension now comes with a self-leveling suspension for different road conditions. All this is powered by a 32-valve, 5.6-liter DOHC V8 engine and 5-speed automatic that deliver 317 hp and 385 ft-lbs of torque. The 2009 Armada LE comes standard with a trailer hitch and can tow up to 9,100 pounds.

The 2009 Nissan Armada LE 4WD luxury full-size SUV will happily hit off-road trails thanks to high- and low-range gearing. Standard skid plates supplement its 9.8 inches of ground clearance. It features a center locking and limited-slip differential as well as a self-leveling suspension. The 5.6-liter DOHC V8 and 5-speed automatic get 317 hp and 385 ft-lbs of torque at 3,400 RPM. It can tow up to 9,000 pounds with the included trailer hitch, but achieves only 12/17 mpg.

This SUV keeps its three rows of eight passengers safe with standard traction and stability control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brake assist and brakeforce distribution, front and rear stabilizer bars, and dual front-side airbags with passenger deactivation and side curtain airbags for all three rows. The 2009 Armada LE 4WD adds larger 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, which come with a tire monitor. A rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors help when backing up, as do the power retractable mirrors. Automatic headlights, foglights, auto-dimming mirrors, and side mirrors with turn signals are also standard.

Running boards provide easy access to the cabin. Both the split-folding second and third row and the front passenger seat fold flat, expanding the 20-cubic-foot cargo area to 97 cubic feet. Second-row passengers can recline and get their own audio and climate controls, and captain's chairs can replace the second-row bench. A power liftgate and separate flip-up window offer access to the cargo area, which comes with tie-downs and a power outlet. A tray and organizer cost extra. A roof rack is included as well.

The 2009 Armada LE 4WD piles on the luxury by adding leather upholstery, 8-way and 6-way power front seats with driver's memory, heated front seats, remote start, a 10-speaker Bose sound system, and a garage opener. Already standard are a 6-CD player with MP3 jack and satellite radio, remote entry, full power features, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, intermittent front and rear wipers, a trip computer, a temperature gauge, a tachometer, a compass, and Bluetooth. If that's not enough, you can add a sunroof, a DVD player with wireless headphones, and a real-time navigation system with hard drive.
